    “Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims,” said Louis J. Freeh, the former federal judge and director of the F.B.I. who oversaw the investigation. “The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized.”

    "Paterno, through his family, insisted after Sandusky’s arrest that he never knew anything about the 1998 case. But Freeh’s report asserts that Paterno not only knew of the investigation, but followed it closely."

    The entire report is available as a .pdf at CNN.com.

    Here's the press release:


    The link in the press release to the full report won't work for me. The CNN link worked.

    Can't take a good look at the actual report on my phone, but will be interesting to see if it uncovered any new, ya know, actual facts. News reports so far are just excerpts stating what any idiot already knows.

    Well blow out my candle, JoePa was a pedophile defender. I'm shocked to just now discover this. #PedophileStateUniversity.

    Here's a link to the actual report. It's a couple hundred pages long, so haven't had a chance to read it, but from a quick scan it appears the alleged emails are included in the exhibits in the end.
  9. I have to confess that I keep picturing the highlights of the investigation being sung by the FreehReport.com band (think FreeCreditReport.com commercials). God help me.

    The billable hours from an attorney working on "suspected child abuse" in February 2001 makes me want to throw up.

    Let's wait until the facts are known.
